07 oil leaks

Are any other dealers out there coming accross oil leaks with the 07 Bergs....our 06s, no problem, 07s are a different story...sold a new fe550e to a customer and water pump shaft is doing more than seeping (sent updated seal which should have been installed from the factory anyway), also same customer's countershaft seal is leaking (still)..normally it will leak a bit then stop once the seal settles in, but 3-4 rides later and his still leaks (not a chain adjustment problem either, his chain is not too tight). I normally would not be that concerned, except 3 07 550s are having this problem 2 FEs and 1 FS (however, our 07 fe demo finally stopped) and one 07 650 is still doing it...again, no issues with our 05 (even when new) 650 or 06 380 or 450s...

should we be automatically updating all 07s with new seals and new countershaft bushings? has any other dealer received a tech bulletin on this? just trying to see what other dealers are noticing...

My 07 450 is leaking oil out of the water pump weep hole so what is the difference
in the new seals compared to the old ones
I had problems with the seals leaking on previous bikes 01 400 and 04 450 it started with
a oil leak then it progressed to oil and coolant leak the bummer part is that my new bike
started leaking much sooner than the older bikes

A couple of weeks ago I replaced the seal on the coolant side as antifreeze was leaking out the weep hole. I went ahead and ordered a new seal for the oil side as well, it came with WP bearing as one part number.

I was out today for a shake down run before leaving for Moab next week, and now the oil side is leaking!! Coolant side is holding fine.

Too late now, I guess it will be like that until I get back from Moab so I can fix it. I wonder if I got an updated oil seal, and that is why it is leaking?

you all have brand new bikes and they leak ?

we as a group should pressure ktm to fix this @#$## problem , as you put more hours on the bikes the worse the leaks will get .

if you don't fix the coolant leak then it might turn into a double leaker, oil and coolant . if you don't fix the oil leak then expect a coolant leak as well .and when you have any of these leaks please WATCH the condition of your oil ... you can observe clean oil thru the sight glass
one minute and milky goo the next .

Have some oil leak issues on mine as well. Anyone know how we get the message back to Husaberg / make this right? I am happy to draft a letter/email -just need to know where it should go.

I would assume Husaberg knows of this issue as it is basically unchanged since 2001!
